Movie Info

Though a top-billed British stage star, Feliz Aylmer seldom rose above the supporting cast in films: Mr. Emmanuel is a rare exception. Aylmer plays the title role, an elderly European Jew living in Manchester, England. Honoring a promise to a young refugee, Mr. Emmanuel makes a perilous journey to Nazi Germany to search for the boy's mother. The gentle, even-tempered old man is subject to all manner of persecution by the jack-booted Gestapo thugs, but he is saved from the Concentration Camps through the intervention of Greta Gynt, a British woman who is the mistress of a high-ranking Nazi. While Mr. Emmanuel himself emerges from Germany intact, his mission ends on an unexpectedly melancholy note. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
